While traditional computers can simulate the function of the biological brain, this comes at a huge disadvantage in terms of speed and energy use. However, directly emulating the structure of the brain in hardware is extremely challenging due to the very high physical fanout, localized memory and analog/digital hybrid computation.

In this talk, we will introduce ideas on hardware for understanding the brain and building artificial intelligence. We will discuss how a novel hardware platform, the superconducting opto-electronic hardware platform, can be used to directly emulate some of the features of the brain in hardware. This superconducting opto-electronic platform utilizes some of the same elements as solid-state platforms for quantum computation, but without the need for quantum state generation or detection. The platform comprises semiconductor LED light sources coupled to integrated waveguides for communication, and superconducting single photon detectors and superconducting electronics for low-power, energy efficient computation. We will show our progress towards building networks in this hardware, from the device level of individual neuron elements, to the component level of small demonstration networks of neurons, to the system level
